Seats for the con­cert are avail­able against a do­na­tion of €100 each (stalls and lower boxes) or €50 (gallery). Tick­ets may be re­served through teatru­ma­noel.com.mt.

The fund-rais­ing con­cert is an an­nual event or­gan­ised by the Foun­da­tion through which it seeks to gen­er­ate the nec­es­sasy fund­ing to achieve its ob­jec­tives. Pa­trons at­tend­ing the con­cert will be wit­ness­ing the Mal­tese tenor Joseph Calleja who will be flanked by sev­eral of the Foun­da­tion’s schol­ars per­form­ing in a most pres­ti­gious venue.

Speak­ing about the con­cert, Joseph Calleja said: “I al­ways look for­ward to this event, where I per­form to­gether with sev­eral of our schol­ars. I am thrilled, par­tic­u­larly this year, that the con­cert is be­ing hosted at the Teatru Ma­noel, and I am con­vinced that with the reper­toire we are putting to­gether this will be an in­ti­mate event and an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence for our bene­fac­tors.”

Pa­trons at­tend­ing will also be in­vited to a reception to which Joseph Calleja and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing artists will be at­tend­ing.The reception will be held at the Casino Mal­tese and will com­mence right af­ter the con­cert.
